This antique settee is attributed to celebrated American cabinetmaker Thomas Day (1801-1861) and has been reupholstered in a multi-colored plaid fabric for modern flair. A free Black craftsman in Caswell County, North Carolina, Day was highly respected for his skill and productivity, challenging the standards of the Antebellum South with his large workshop during the 1850s. This settee serves as a testament to Day’s work, featuring a curvaceous form, carved apron, and carved shell details along the top of the frame. Mounted on casters for ease of movement around the household, this piece of home American history will serve as a treasured family heirloom for years to come.
